My dog tries for the Darwin Award

Due to the weather warming up, I decided to shut down the hot tub for the summer. It's a big round thing, so I drained it and stood it on its side to dry.

Mello saw it standing there, and, to my astonishment, decided it was a giant hamster wheel. So she immediately jumped in it and began running.

This was a disaster in the making.

She actually got it about 20 feet across the yard before the whole thing fell over upside down, trapping her under it.

It was pretty hard not to laugh at the muffled "woof" of astonishment as I went over to free her.

Moron dog.

If you had been recording that you could have won $10,000 on America's Funniest Videos. I would have loved to have seen that!

I have a question. Why do you shut down the hot tub for the summer? If I had one I think I'd use it year round.

Mello sound like a smart dog looking for a good time to me. "20 feet across the yard". A dumb dog would not have thought of the trick.

How did I miss that you added a third dog? Sounds like a "normal" sized dog, too!

You have to get her to do it again and post it on YouTube.

These are the moments we put up with the barking, the pee and the shedding for.
